Investing in the current climate?

So with places at the market being at historic highs, where are people looking to invest? It would seem that investing in the market at this time might not be the best idea. Or I could be completely wrong on that. Thoughts?

Bull market has another year to two left. They'll crash it just in time for Trump's reelection campaign.

curious as to why land too. Seems to me the returns barley pace inflation.

While the market is at it's highs, I'm still investing there. I'm slowly shifting away from the more aggressive tech stocks I've been in and searching for lower P/E and solid dividends. It's been tough.

once slope of 3mo-10y UST curve drops inside 80bps (105bps now), statistical probability of bear market in stocks rises to 40%. Fed tightening is obviously the key, but I'd suggest we probably have the balance of 2018 to go. Returns are unlikely to be as strong as the past however, as risk and vol will continue to rise. Is land the answer? Depends on your horizon frankly and relative value opportunity. If mortgage rates go up 100bps, payments will rise accordingly (and banks cant wait til that happens!), so buyers wont necessarily be chasing higher prices at higher rates.
Stocks are still decent value, but at some point cash becomes KING...and if you look around, there arent many guys we all work with that had cash to invest in the last bear market...so expect some serious nervous investors!

Raw land. I have seen steady and very healthy growth in land value. Of course, this is dependent on where, your age, and the time you are willing to wait. I guess since I have no idea where you live returns in certain areas obviously vary. I learned from my dad that over time, and good placement, land is a great investment with the potential for awesome returns. One quick tip is to make sure it can be entered into ag or timber exemption to greatly reduce the tax burden.

Based on successes seen from friends, rental housing is also a good place to park cash as the returns on a monthly basis can be pretty darn good as well. Heck, our cabin in Wisconsin that I put into a vacation rental program has a really good annual profit. Better than any other fund I have for sure.

Just my opinion of course.
